Description

The SEE Program moves from the understanding of the potential high impact that Social Entrepreneurship can have for the current hard times that all Europe is experiencing. Social Entrepreneurship means at the same time tackling social issues such as poverty, unemployment, ageing, education, health, etc., with organisations that strive to maximise their social impact rather than their revenues. This kind of organisations has the potential to be a significant part of the answer to the current economic crisis.

The SEE Program is an education program providing in high quality education materials for prospective and already active social entrepreneurs. To achieve this, a bottom-up approach was taken, moving from the analysis of social enterprises, interviews to entrepreneurs, and currently existing programs. SEE Programme resources for learners and trainers are freely available on the http://learn.socialbiz.eu platform. The platform contains all handbooks in multiple languages, and a wealth of classroom and learning resources.
